I think it's best to have a fresh set of gaskets on hand just in case you need one.
I did my doo at a tech day with some really helpful KLRista's guiding me through it. Twice actually because I used the coil spring the first time and must have damaged it during installation because it broke the first time I adjusted it. Second time I installed the torsion spring.
Both times I found the gaskets in fine shape and at the suggestion of the KLRista's helping me I did not replace them. I just put a little bit of gasket sealer on it (very little - not slathered on). It's held up fine with no leaks.
The clutch side was a totally different story, That old gasket was stuck on and required a lot of work to get it off.
My .02c is inspect the gasket and if it looks good and came of easy go ahead and re-use it. It's worked for me.
